Fall DIY Lip Scrub

Brown Sugar Lip Scrub 10-2014Fall is finally here!

Say goodbye to dry LIPS with this awesome scrub I have been making it and using for years especially in the fall and winter when your lips start to get more dry.Before I make Sunday brunch for my Southern husband I wanted to whip up something special for me in my kitchen.
Today I am going to show you how to make a treatment scrub for your lips. Doesn’t the photo I took of it look delightful? Smells good too!

Honey Cinnamon Lip Plumping & Exfoliating Scrub

What you will need is:

1 tablespoon of Honey
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of Organic brown sugar

I prefer quality local honey from the farmers market or a stores like Whole Foods NOT the Dollar store. I mix all these into a small glass bowl with a mini whisk or fork.Take the paste and apply it to your lips.LEAVE on your lips at least 10 minutes.Next rub them gently with your finger or use a baby’s toothbrush.Then rinse off with luke warm water and a wet warm wash cloth.
The beautiful benefits are that the honey makes the lips softer.The brown sugar exfoliates and the cinnamon acts as a lip plumper.Have any leftover…save and it will keep at least another week in a tight sealed jar.

Oh my husband just woke up gotta run! ENJOY my recipe dahlings!

HELLO…Greasy face!

New Image Powder Foundation 2011

Does your face look oily and greasy …NOT glowing?
HATE foundation? Do you want a pretty quick and natural looking fix?

First of all don’t hate your shiny oily skin. Oily skin is your friend. It keeps you younger looking longer. However, I have oily skin and I know how you feel. Besides using good skin care for your skin type my beauty secret is a powder foundation in a compact. A double duty beauty that gives you amazing results and looks soft and pretty. I professionally recommend a kabuki (short & fluffy)powder brush to apply it. NOT the flat powder puff that comes with them. I get compliments on my complexion every day! I hope you will TRY one someday soon and enjoy the beautiful looking benefits.

BRUSH oily skin away,tone down shine and even out your complexion with this new beauty technology and look.
Say “Hello” to a gorgeous new look.

PS
Dry,normal to dry or hormonal skin loves this too.It evens out your skin with a kiss of powder and foundation too.NOT heavy and no cakey powder face.

Got dry skin,chapped lips,dry cough?

humidifier violife

It has been a crazy cold week in not so sunny Florida since the new year began and as I write I am drenched in air beauty and my pretty pink warm bathrobe. Listening to George Skaroulis’s soothing CD named Sanctuary I am creating a beauty sanctuary for me. My new go to beauty product is not a dream anti-aging serum and is not “hope in a jar”…It is a humidifier!

Along side my soothing illuminating salt lamp, my happy Buddha figurine I am feeling healthy and so serene. Keeping the air around me and my family filled with the magic of this inexpensive user friendly humidifier.Your skin gets thirsty just like your body craves water.A humidifier is great for your home,bedside,office,end table,reading nook,hotel room…where a little moisture adds a lot of comfort. Especially in the colder weather we have been having.The humidifier delivers an ultra fine vapor without large or heavy tanks to fill every few hours.

Violife is the name of the brand and it uses a standard 16 oz. drinking water bottle,remove the cap, place the bottle adapter on the bottle and turn down to place in the unit.Another great feature besides the personal mist is it outputs 3 different changing light,for added peaceful looking ambience.

Do you suffer from chapped lips,dry skin,sinus problems,snoring,dry cough or itchy skin? This may just be the healthy thing for you and your new beauty cream.(along with your skin care beauty regime)

Take care of the skin you live in!

Hope you’ll take better care of yourself in this brand new year!

Cozy concoction for dry skin

Shea Butter is all the rage and is a very old beauty elixir. After a long day of work and no flip flop weather here in sunny Florida it is in the 30’s !

My skin is so dry and I am in the mood to whip up a salve for my skin and lips. I took a large scoop of shea butter out of a tub that I have and placed it in a bowl. I then took a pestle and mortar and started to stir the shea. I squeezed in some honey from the bear bottle to add a sweet moisturizing delight to the mix. BOTH moisturize and honey is an antibacterial. After you have the amount you want I placed this mix into the microwave and cooked on low 60 seconds. (depending on your microwave may be warm it more)

Stir this creamy butter, sit down and drap the area  where you will apply this with a small towel so you don’t stain sheets or carpeting. Rub in as it warms into your skin and enjoy the kisses of moisture on your skin. I love to use this on my elbows,knees and feet. I also love to put on white loose and cozy soft socks afterwards and go to sleep.

Wake up to softer skin… Guys and Gals~ Got a bit leftover on your finger? Apply some to your lips~

*Of course do not try this recipe if you are allergic to any of these ingredients.
